Today I am sharing my Scrap the Girls Design Team Layout for this month.

This month the challenge was “First, let me take a Selfie”

And here is my take on the challenge.

There is a process video on POPLEOPOD YouTube so I won’t go into all the details you can just watch me create it.  So check it out and let me know what you think.

Oh, and here are a few close ups:

Tag Swap

Another tag swap I participated in this month.

Here is the Moodboard…

I took inspiration from the colours, the letters and the idea that Lady Gaga is a big voice that is very empowered and stands up for her what she believes in.  She isn’t anyones puppet.

I focused on the message that I wanted to portray this time round rather than any heavy texture or media.  This Viva Las VegaStamp! was perfect.  I also had the initial idea to be cutting the strings with scissors but I didn’t have any stamps or chipboard pieces in my stash.  I came across this saw and thought, yep it’s a little drastic, would make a mess but cutting strings is what it is all about.

Masculine Mixed Media Card

Today I am sharing a Masculine Card I made. The card I created I wanted to be very neutral.  What I mean by neutral is Occasion neutral.  Something that is clearly masculine but could be used for any thing.  This is what I came up with….

It’s not secret I love grunge.  So I created a grungy embossed background that I then layered embossed chipboard over the top before adding a stamped fussy cut image.

The Colour Blast Embossing Powder is super shiny and difficult to photograph.

As for the stamped man, he is from A Stampers Anonymous collection of stamps I recently purchased with this task in mind. I coloured him using the new Colour Blast Shimmer Powders.  I’m not much into fussy cutting but I think I might do it more often as it is a great way to use your stamps.

There is a process video that goes along with this card too you can check it out here

Dreamers Gotta Dream.

You would think I am on top of my DT work.  That is not true. There are just so many challenges around this month that have drawn me in.  This is another.  It is for my local scrapbooking group called GetCrafty.  This is the picture that inspiration is to be drawn from….

I know crazy right?!  So this is what I came up with….

I went with colour inspiration, sparkles and a whole lot of make believe.

My Viva Las VegaStamps! got a work out.

My Kryptonite

Another challenge I have played along with this month is the Sketch from Anna’s Craft Cupboard.  Here is the sketch…

I love this layout.  It captures a comic book feel perfect for a Super hero party.

Sucker for Love

This month Picture This challenge was a Tic Tac Toe and love these.  So I had to play along.

Here is the challenge.

Spencer and the Crazy Cat lady | Flutterby Designs DT Share

Just  quick share today using the new Flutterby Designs “Fur-ever” friends collection. This was the 8th layout I created from this collection.  I had plans for a layout but then things changed on Saturday.  This layout features my best friends cat, Spencer.  I had planned to make a funny layout but then on Saturday, my BF Sarah, told me Spence was a little bit off and had to make a weekend visit to the vet.  On Monday after a grim diagnosis Spencer was put to sleep.  So I changed my funny layout to something Sarah could hang on her wall.  I framed and delivered it before she got home from work.

For the background I used the “You Spin Me Right Round” Stencil  with some Colour Blast Colour Spray, then stamped over the top for a bit more visual interest.

Here are a few close ups…

Sarah loved it.

Now here is another layout layout I did.  I thought I would never manage to use the cat cards from this collection, then on a day last week when it was close to a MILLION degrees (Queensland summer temperature at 40 degrees celcius) my daughter decided the it was too hot for clothes but totally suitable for a cat beanie.  She wouldn’t wear the damn thing in winter and I have no idea where she got it from but Freaking Crazy is the only way to describe her.

But here are a few close ups.
